Monday, April 24, 2017 on the Doctor Ira Breite Gastroenterology and Internal Medicine Show on SiriusXM 110: Doctor Radio!


You're probably not going to be surprised, but we are talking basic science and medicine today. Not the "translational" stuff, but the real, nitty gritty stuff that confuse even most physicians find difficult to understand.

The first thing brings together a modern evil with the stuff of the middle ages.  Dr. Victor J. Torres, Ph.D., of NYU, will be joining us to talk about the links between medieval medicines and Staph aureus, a problem in everything from gym bags to ICU's.  Turns out that our medieval ancestors knew more than we give them credit for.  Find out what, and how!

After that, we will have Gastroenterology Update, where I will tell you the latest and greatest in the world of digestive disease and answer your questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS! Or via Twitter, of course.

Continuing with our basic science theme, we are going to be talking HIV. Dr. Jenna Honeycutt, a PhD post-doc at the University of North Carolina, will be coming on to talk about how the HIV gene persists in a part of the body despite treatment (something similar happened with Ebola, if I remember correctly).  Find out how one discovery will (hopefully) lead to others and, potentially, a cure for HIV.

We will end the show with Ask Doctor Ira,where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor ask me!  Give me a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

Happy Holidays to everyone. Passover is here and Easter is just around the corner.  Matzoh, which consists of unleavened flour and water, could also be described as the perfect food to help the gastroenterologists college fund.  But its not just matzoh!  Join me and Dr. Michael Camilleri of the Mayo Clinic as we talk about constipation and irritable bowel syndrome with constipation!

Can't go? Give us call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS

After that, we will expand the conversation in GI with Digestive Disease Update, where I will tell you the latest and greatest in the world of digestive disease and answer your questions at 1-877-NYU-DOCS or send me a tweet!

I just got back from Miami.  I won't lie, I'm closer to grandchildren than children.  But there is a little something odd about being in a "Zika" area.  Join me as I speak with infectious disease and emerging threat expert Dr. Amesh Adalja.

Going South?  Questions?  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!

We will end the show, as we usually do, with Ask Doctor Ira, where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all: anything your forgot to ask your doctor ask me!  Give a call at1-877-NYU-DOCS.

Join and my fellow NYU gastroenterologist Dr. Lisa Ganjhu as we talk about fatty liver.  After that we will expand the conversation with GI Update where I will tell you the latest and greatest news in the world of digestive disease.  Liver and GI questions...let me know at 1-877-NYU-DOCS.

We will continue the GI conversation at 9AM ET when Thangam Venkatesan, MD of the Medical College of Wisconsin joins us to talk about Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome.

We will end the show, as usual, with Ask Doctor Ira where you can ask me any question on any medical topic at all: anything you forgot to ask your doctor, ask me!  Give us a call at 1-877-NYU-DOCS!
